Eating the Free Soup Americans Won’t Eat
This should come as no surprise: the illegal aliens who have been flooding into the country, supposedly to do work Americans aren’t willing to do, are still here even though the work isn’t. Westchester County, New York’s Journal News weeps for the plight of the undocumented and unemployed in Port Chester:
Jose Antonio Correa folded his hands and bowed his head in prayer over a lunch tray.
Correa, who is looking for carpentry work after losing his pizzeria job four months ago, is grateful for the hamburger and soup he gets at the Don Bosco Community Center.
… Selvin Maldonado, 35, gets a meal at the kitchen almost every day, now that he has been out of work for the past month.
… Ovidio Cifuentes, who last worked in Greenwich three weeks earlier, worried about not being able to send money home to his parents and girlfriend in Guatemala. He used to make $500 a week from painting and putting up gypsum wallboard. He eats at the soup kitchen to save the little money he has.
“This is a place we can eat and we don’t have the extra expense of buying food when we’re not working,” he said in Spanish.
Correa said not having a job stirs up the anxiety he felt when he decided to leave Honduras 10 years ago.
I’m feeling some anxiety too: over the implications of having allowed tens of millions of unskilled Third-Worlders, many of whom aren’t even learning English, to pour across our unguarded border, now that the economy won’t support them anymore. Out of sheer moonbattery we have imported a time bomb that will start going off within the next few years.
